Morzine is a large and well-established skiing commune. The town, considering its size, is exceptionally pretty when compared to some of its neighbours and has managed to retain its Alpine charm. The resort is in a great location with easy access to the rest of the Portes du Soleil. Morzine is also filled with brilliant shops, bars and restaurants and is very easy to get around due to its efficient bus network.
Morzine is part of the huge Portes du Soleil ski area, which encompasses 14 French and Swiss ski resorts. The ski area holds over 600km of well-maintained pisted slopes, made up of mainly blues and reds, to keep you entertained over your short break. The area maintains a brilliant snow record and has relatively high-altitude skiing, with lifts going up to 2,466m. You can either choose to buy a ski pass for just Morzine or upgrade to the entire Portes du Soleil area.
Advanced skiers will find a plethora of great skiing to enjoy here over a weekend. Freeriders can look forward to plenty of powdery off-piste around Les Gets and Avoriaz, particularly the challenging Chamossiere bowl. Morzine has lots of tree runs that are great for weaving in-and-out of too. For advanced skiers looking to tackle a labouring black, head up to the Swiss Wall at Les Crosets for a truly steep and thrilling mogul run.
Morzine is a fun and thriving town and it has all the off-mountain activities that you would expect from a well-developed ski resort. The town's brilliant après bars are known to attract weekend skiers, and those looking for great dining spots won't be disappointed either. If you want a weekend away from the slopes, Morzine has plenty of non-skiing activities like snowshoeing, dog-sledding and superb spas to enjoy on a short break.
